one Tom could not have been more
startled and amazed. Somehow he had
never conceived of Daintree as a mar
ried man. That solitary spirit, cen
tered and immersed in self and con
sciously wallowing in its own solitude
nud gloom, had forbidden such a
thought the more easily since Tom had
himself abandoned every aspiration of
the kind. A twinge of jealousy suc
ceeded his first surprise, but in another
moment hl.t heart dilated with unself
ish pleasure, and his congratulations
were no less sincere than vociferous.
"If you knew her." said Daintree,
"you would congratulate me even
more." And he proceeded to praise his
choice as he could have praised noth
ing that was not in some sense his,
and yet his passion was convincing.
His voice shook with it as his face

"Perhaps before. You never know
how long or how short the voyage will
tie. Mine was 1..! days, and that was
long. I kept a chart of it stop; I'm
going to fetch It! Clear away. I've
had dinner enough."
He rushed from the table, to return
presently with a mariner's chart of the
world, upon which he had neatly mark
ed out the daily courses of his recent
voyage. It was a chain of many link?
from Knglarid to the Cape and a chain
of longer links from the Cape to Aus

"Now we'll see where they've got to.

It was on the floor, and Tom. picked
it up. averting his eyes so that he
should see nothing while Daintree re
ferred to the contents.
"Ha! Here we have It." and the let
ter was thrust into his pocket. "They

"Only eighty-one! Then you're right."
sighed Daintree, "and they won't be

"They may make a quicker voyage."
"They may, but I never have. The
one before was a hundred and forty
days. They were loth above the av
erage, but not so very much."
"Then all the more time to prepare

the situation. "We must get the place
to rights, you know, sir."
"That's true. It will help to pass the

rutin tree was delighted. He shook
Tom's hand, and up went the chart
and in went the drawing pin.
"You see," he said, "they've not got
to the Cape yet." They're only Just be
ginning to turn the corner and run
their easting down."
"That's assuming they came no
quicker than you," said his consoler.
"Well, we will assume It. Still, when
they're a hundred days out we'll have
n flag ready, and you shall begin go
ing every morning to the point to s-ee
whether there's a ball at the south
yard arm, and after that will be the
longest time of all."
Meanwhile there was much to do,
and Tom did most of It with enormous
zest He had never thought to be so
happv again. His enthusiasm was the
one return that he could make to Da in
tree, and he permitted it no bounds. It
was Tom who stuck the drawing pin
through a cork ship of cunning build.
full rigged, with needles for masts and
paper sails. When Daintree saw it,
they christened her the Itosamund,
after her real namesake, with a fitting
libation, and from that day forth the
cork vessel plowed the white ocean of
the chart and was a good half inch
nearer Svdnev every morning when
the master ot the house entered the
"Yon sympathetic fellow!" he would
say to Tom, and sympathy bred sym
pathy as it always will. "You must
marry yourself, Thomas," he would
add, "and you and your wife must live
with me and mine, and we'll go into
partnership together up the country
somewhere and all four live happy
To all of which the servant would
shake his head, but continue to enter
Into the master's happiness with un
abated sympathy and enthusiasm
Nor was this a conscious merit In
Tom; it made him think no better of
himself. He knew how much was In
spired by gratitude and how much
more by the selfish relief of sinking
his own woes In the hopes and fears
and raptures of his friend. He was
not even aware of the essential fine
ness of a nature capable of this kind
of comfort. Eternal dissatisfaction
with his own feelings kent his opinion
of himself at zero still. And If the I
new bond between Tom and his bene
factor had done no more than provide
them with common ground on which
they might meet and be at one in all
sincerity, even so it would have done
much for Tom's peace of mind.
When Daintree spoke of his beloved
his dark face shone, the darker eyes
softened, and the rich voice quivered
with no common passion. It was pos
sible to agree and to inland without
hypocrisy, which was not possible
when the puny poet stood In the strong
man's shoes. Of his poetry enough has
been said, but about his passion there
was no mistake. The one was gen
uine; the other was not. It was a
man's passion, a selfish passion, but
the sheer masterful strength of It was
patent to Tom from the first. Some
times It made him fear for the girl
and despair of himself. (Gratitude
apart, it was as though his spoiled and
petty spirit was incapable of an hon
est, whole hearted, ungrudging ad
miration and regard.
In all their talks the only name Tom
heard was Clarinda. It was character
istic of his state that he never Inquir
ed the other. His sympathy and his
interest were confined to his friend;
real euriivsity he had none. He asked
no questions, but a crooked answer
was ready for him if he had.
"You must let me tell her all I owe
to vou." Tom said once. "It will be a
pleasure to her and a relief to me."
"Perhaps you owe as much to her
self." It had slipped out, but Tom was not
at all excited.
"You mean that she believed in me,
too?" he asked with a mild sort of In
credulity, and he saw front the other's
face that she had not. "I'pon my
soul," he thought, "I begin to disbe
lieve in myself, especially since I've
done as bad out here and perhaps not
heard the last of it yet'."
Daintree wondered why he shudder
ed in Hie sun. It was because his one
true and fierce emotion was the base
fear of further tortures. He despised
himself for that most of all.
Meanwhile the cork ship with the pa
per sails was creeping slowly, but
surely, across the great white south
Atlantic of the chart, and the wall on
which it hung had been repapered, and
the whole bungalow smelt of paint. It
was a fair sized house of two stories,
with a veranda encircling the one and
a balcony the other. Very pretty it
looked in its new coat of paint for the
summer, a white coat with yellow trim
mings, which stood out delightfully on
the blue water's edge. The garden
lawn merged into a narrow strand that
slid straight under the wavelets them
selves. As summer set in the trees

dusk when Daintree pulled up on the
outskirts of the town and hailed a dis

in a sling.

"I w ish It wasn't, sir."
"You've left the force?"
"These six months. It was my arm.

An emaciated hand came through

were uninjured, but half the middle

"A bullet; caught me on the funny

Tom held his breath.

Daintree expressed sympathy with
the man and whipped up his horses.

tone so piteous and so eager that Dain

attentively as Tom now unbosomed
